I have been using HRH since the day I was born there 48 years ago. It used to "Treat People Better", even though lots of people did not like it, I had always had a wonderful experience. Until the new... more CEO took over. And slowly, as money is wasted buying new shirts, new logo, etc...new landscaping, etc...Then I had to take my husband to the ER this Thursday night who has only been to an ER 2x in 30 years. We arrived by ambulance on July 13th at 10:30pm to wait in the hall so the medical assistant could change the sheets on the bed in the Peds room we were given that was about as big as my bathroom. I was left to sit in a hard chair for 12 hours with no sleep. The ER was not busy and the staff stated so, yet we went hours without ever being checked on. A drunk, belligerent man was put in the much bigger room next to ours that had just been arrested and was transported by a Sheriff. I can tell you everyone down the hall heard his entire story along with every cuss word invented because they left his door open. If anyone wanted to rest, that wasn't happening. He was actually charged with disorderly conduct while we were there, I know this because we could hear every word. Around 3am after receiving pain meds, and epidural in his back , a steroid orally, and much more- they wanted to release us. At this point, my husband could STILL not sit up, walk, or roll over. And there was no way i could've gotten him in my vehicle to drive 5 minutes home. Yet I was told that we could be transported home by ambulance and have a Home Based PT come work with him. Not sure who was going to take him to the bathroom unless the PT was going to stay with us? I asked why we could not be admitted and was told ER Doctors and even his Primary Care HRH Doctor did not have "Admitting Privileges". Only the Hospitalist who has never seen my husband in his life. After continuing to press, because they still weren't "for sure" what caused my husband to be in such back pain when he moved at 5am, they ordered a CT scan. At that point they found a bulged disc as well, and allowed us to stay in the ER until PT could come up after 8am, as long as they didn't get full. This used to be the small town, do things right-not "I can't because of "policy" hospital. The hospital was not full on beds and we even offered to pay out of pocket. I can tell you now, after 48 years-we are looking for new doctors and a new hospital. We know it isn't the ER Doctor or Primary Care Dr.'s fault, however, it is sad they have to operate within the confines of this now big bureaucracy. Go check out just how much money our newest CEO makes at our "Non-profit Hospital". It will amaze you.
